    I agree in certain sports, such as football. You cannot play football year round let alone play the sport for one season without the potential of obtaining a catastrophic injury! Risk vs reward in sports. Football is not a graceful or technical support. It is a sport of mass, strength, power, etc. The toll the body takes in playing a season of football is too much! However, other sports such as soccer or basketball is not a high impact catastrophic sport such as football. Both these sports require more agility, skill, fineness and creative play. The best players and most technical players play much more than they don’t regarding soccer and basketball. Im in favor of multi-sports but to use football mostly as an example is unrealistic. There are life long active sports that are great for you and have more long term reward than risk when participating in them.
